August Birthstone Jewelry

About August Birthstone Jewelry

Peridot, one choice for August birthstone jewelry, is a yellow-green gemstone believed to instill the wearer with power and influence. Ancient Egyptians called peridot the ‘gem of the sun’, because they believed it protected them from evil spirits and ‘terrors of the night’. The Crusaders brought peridot from the Red Sea island of Zabargad to Europe in the Middle Ages. In 2016, spinel was designated as an alternative August birthstone by jewelry trade associations. This gemstone occurs in many colors, but red spinel is the most popular. It is also close to the ruby – the July birthstone – in appearance.

    Green Bead & Chrome Necklace

    , ,
    This green bead necklace from the 1930s is probably European in origin. A large, faceted glass bead capped with textured metal shaped like flower petals is the centerpiece. Textured chrome balls along with green-glass beads (two flower-shaped with caps, two round ones without) continue up the textured chain to the spring-ring clasp. This playful jewel has a Machine Age-feel. An unusual and delightful piece for a woman who likes to wear warm colors in any season. Scroll down to see a coordinating bracelet.
